Chevrolet El Camino 1959
The El Camino got up to mass production two years later, after his one time competitor to the Ford Ranchero, but sales significantly ahead.
The resemblance to Bel Air, the inner — Bescanon, we can describe Chevrolet El Camino first generation. Payload of up to 1150 lbs (515 kg), the volume of transported goods was about 1 cubic meter with the full weight of 4,900 pounds (2,200 kg), even by modern standards, not bad at all.
The standard engine was the eight-cylinder 283 (4.6 l) Turbo-jet or dual four barrel carburetor with a capacity of 185 (135 kW) and 195 (143 kW) horsepower respectively. As an option, was offered the same amount, but with fuel injection Ramjet, with the capacity of up to 290 HP (213 kW)! But it’s not the most “powerful” unit, the most is 348 (5.7 l) with a non-traditional, treherbert power supply system, which delivers up to 335 HP (246 kW).
Original road test (car 1959, 348-th block):
0-100 km/h = 7,1 with
Maximum speed = 210 km/h
Drag racing 1/4 mile = 14s
For 1959 sold about 22246 cars, but everything changed a year later…
In 1960, the year the standard unit for fuel efficiency deforsiruyut — its capacity drops to 170 HP (130 kW) and fuel injected engine goes into “summer”. Both exterior and interior changes are no do not develop, gray and pale green in color and cheap upholstery materials. So the plant was disposed of — not clear whether the marketers something never got there, deciding to save on quality of materials and not paying enough attention to the advertising company, in view of the “unwound” model or, perhaps, the reason is quite different.
But the miracle did not happen, orders are falling in his eyes — almost 3 times less than last year, and General Motots decides to “freeze” the production of the El Camino.
